Importing Digital Camera Photos

Rather than wading through the seemingly endless hierarchy of digital camera storage to copy your photos by hand, you might prefer to let Windows do most of the work. You do that by using Windows 8’s built-in importing features. To get started, you have three choices:

• In the Photos app, right-click the screen (or swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen) to open the app bar, select Import, select your digital camera in the list, choose which photos you want to import, and then select Import.

• Open File Explorer and then click Computer to open the Computer folder. Right-click the camera and then click Import Pictures and Videos.
